CDP Meal of Approval

Marion Square, Charleston, S.C.

This is the second in a series on my favorite picnic meals in my favorite lowcountry spots. Mmmmmm.

I got home starving as usual and walked up to Five Loaves Cafe on Canon St. They offer a salad & half sandwich combo for $7.50 and I always get exactly the same thing.

Salad: Tomato, mozzarella, roasted sweet peppers, asparagus and baby greens
Dressing: Wild mushroom and soy
Sandwich: Grilled portobello, sweet onion, roasted pepper, parmesan and spinach spread on a croissant. Ask them to add one slice of provolone cheese. It's a deliciously sloppy sandwich so ask for a couple extra napkins.
This evening's picnic location is Marion Square where there was a photo shoot, a frisbee session, kick ball, a kid selling palmetto roses, a couple of happy dogs and me. Not a bad way to interrupt a walk. Sad though, when you go home heavier than you started.
